Greycon works on Resolute global SAP template roll-out
London, England-based Greycon reported successful completion of the second stage of a five-wave implementation of its X-Trim solution at Resolute Forest Products in Montreal, QC. Resolute initiated the global template roll-out campaign to establish Greycon’s X-Trim solution as its standard trim optimization system.
Resolute markets forest products to over 80 countries and owns or operates over 40 mills manufacturing pulp, paper, tissue and wood products in the US, Canada and South Korea.
Jay Jordan, Greycon’s sales manager for North America said, “Establishing a new system in a company can always be challenging especially when you have multiple sites that need to be aligned. This is why we are so pleased with the X-Trim solution, it integrates seamlessly with SAP, showing Resolute a significant difference almost instantaneously.”
Greycon completed the first wave on February 1, 2016. Since then X-Trim has been implemented at eight mills and by September 2017 the completed campaign will cover 16 mills, all of which are integrated with Resolute’s SAP/APO system.
Resolute reports a number of benefits since X-Trim was implemented including an easy-to-use interface, visualized solution and superior waste reduction. Greycon’s certified Interface for Industry-Specific Optimizers for APO allows Resolute quick configuration and deployment throughout each wave of the project and a seamless interface between X-Trim and APO.
Greycon provides production planning, scheduling and manufacturing execution systems designed specifically for roll-based and flat sheet industries.
